On this regards we the development groups and government institutions are working for the rural safe sanitation program for the poor families who are the major part of the community. From the year 1993 in Bangladesh so many government, non-government and international development organizations and the personal entrepreneurs have developed several models and technology of latrines and have provided them to use after providing awareness on sanitation. But yet it could not get sustainability. This latrine itself is causing environment pollution, extra economical pressure, produce and spread of water and air borne diseases and misuse of home side land.
OVWS is a non-government development organization working for the socioeconomic development of the poor backwards peoples in Bangladesh with government registration. I and my organization are also working with sanitation program for long period. During implementation my research and study result is that the running system and model of latrine and its distribution/installation system is growing the people less interested and discourage to use latrine due to the following reasons;
- It is not sustainable to use for long run.
- It is not a permanent structure.
- It is not cost effective.
- Have no economical return.
- It itself pollute the environment.
- It is not well constructed and protected.
- It has no human waste management.
- It spoils the land resources.
- Unable to install another latrine within short period.
On our survey report we observed that people are conscious about the hygienic sanitation system they have education that not to use hygienic latrine water and air borne diseases are producing and spreading and affecting them and their women and children are suffering with malnutrition causing death also. In this regard they demand for an improved innovative model of latrine which will be well constructed, permanent, long run, cost effective, have economical return, environment friendly and have waste management.
By the public opinion we have innovate a cost effective, environment friendly removable double well constructed latrine by which human waste will recycle as compost fertilizer to use in the agriculture field, we hope that it will be a global accepted model for latrine. We have installed 10 latrines at northern region of Bangladesh among aboriginal families as pilot project and assessed its public and other service provider interest. People gave positive opinion and are interest to install this model of latrine. They are requesting to us for a latrine as partnership help because due to financial unable they could not install it alone. As per requirement and demand we have prepared a project proposal to implement in the proposed area due to fund limitation our organization is not capable to implement this project alone on this regard we spread our hand to receive partnership help that we can implement this project among the aboriginal families. We hope that this project will be a global accepted project and this model can be used in any other developing and under developing country. We are always ready to help any other organization to transfer our technology if anyone is interested to implement in their area.

I ask because I work with iDE and we doing Sanitation work in Zambia. We develop markets for sanitation in the countries where we work - building capacity of private sector actors to produce/sell latrines, training commission based sales agents, generating local demand. Your technology seems interesting but given our market-based approach, its essential that (i) customers WANT the product and are willing to pay for it, and (ii) the private sector can produce it. So just trying to get a sense of your techs potential. I will stay tuned!]]>

I am not sure of the cost and am somewhat in the design stage. It is quite basic and the cost should not be very high if made efficiently and locally. My goal is to create good instructions to share so they can be made locally. I should make a cad file of the toilet available in various formats for those who want to make it. The dimensions would naturally be there and each part could be seen and measured in 3D. I use Sketchup, which has a free version which would work good for such. Hopefully I will get that done as well. Thanks for your interest.

Thanks for your post. Could you kindly see the Hygienic Earth Block And Flush Toilet I am working on as given at this link dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/16411607/Hestroom10.pdf . Further www.LiftUpThePoor.net shows many related designs I have been working on.


Hopefully sometime I will get some needed assistance on this sanitation project. But regardless of such my aim is to simply help the many suffering because of a lack of sanitation provisions. Thus hopefully the various toilet designs which I have been seeking to perfect and which I feel could do much good, will in some manner soon get out to those who need them.

Kind Regards

The Innovation Grant Program for Pro-poor Service Delivery is a competitive grant and partnership program that is being implemented by the Millennium Challenge Account-Zambia (MCA-Zambia) with funding provided by the Millennium Challenge Corporation under a Compact signed between the Governments of the United States of America and the Republic of Zambia.

The program will disburse up to the equivalent of US$ 6.25 million in grants to innovations in water supply, sanitation and solid waste management.

The Program hopes to inspire innovators to propose projects that solve problems in water supply, sanitation, and solid waste management through a process that is competitive, transparent, and accountable. In addition, including the poor, women, and other vulnerable groups (social and gender inclusion) and promoting environmental awareness and regulatory compliance as well as worker health and safety are some of the core values or main principles of the program.

You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Projects prioritised

In its selection, the AWF will prioritise projects focused on the “preparation of climate resilient water resources development programmes and projects” that show strong climate and water adaptation and/or mitigation emphasis. Components focused on improving water governance in the context of climate change and on capturing and disseminating climate and water information and knowledge will be also considered.

Sub-sectors targeted

The sub-sectors supported include water resources infrastructure, water for agriculture, water for energy, water supply and sanitation, and water for environment, among others.
Support could be extended to include non-water infrastructure or natural resources, such as forestry, livestock, or a broader water-energy-land focus of interventions, where it is relevant to the overall water sector and related climate adaptation and mitigation measures.
This AWF initiative will receive special support from the Nordic Development Fund and the Austrian Development Agency, who will make use of their extensive knowledge and worldwide experience in sustainable development and climate change to assist with the implementation of the call.

I am taking a Massive Open On-line Course (MOOC), "Social Entrepreneurship", offered by Copenhagen Business School, a as a way forward of what I learned during the Singapore BoP World convention during which we had the 'Global Sanitation Business Matchmaking' (bopworldconvention.org/sanitationbusinessmatchmaking.html).

Participants to the course are asked to form groups according to their interest and take part to the 7-day challenge (class.coursera.org/socialentrepeneur-001.../The_7-day_challenge) as an assignment of this week. The challenge is a fund raising campaign in support of the CBS Social Entrepreneurship Start-up Fund for a winner project at the end of the course.

In a group of 12 MOOC participants from different countries and professional background, we opted for social "Resource-Based Sanitation' (www.betternow.org/dk/en/resourcebasedsanitation) as our project. Our mission is to create a suitable social business in resource-based sanitation with the objective to improve sanitation using cheap and valuable methods.

On the group behalf, I invite you to support us to ‘win’ this week challenge by raising $2000 in 7 day. Please note that we only one day to go. The fund to raise will be in support of CBS Social Entrepreneurship Start-up Fund, which a winner project initiated by a group of participants will receive at the end of the course. The ‘Resource-Based Sanitation' group will work hard to win. Please click the following link to make your contribution: www.betternow.org/dk/en/resourcebasedsanitation.
